143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.

What foods are great for good looks?

Organic greens (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc.), liver, grassfed butter, bone broth, meat, wild caught fish - especially salmon. Good quality extra virgin olive oil, red palm oil. What's not paleo: spam!

Does the healing take place mostly because Paleo is a grain free, daily free, sugar free diet. Hard to believe that full fat organic meats aid in the healing process.

The veg needs to be completely submerged. Anything sticking out will rot, not ferment. Your set-up needs to breath. No air-tight containers while it is fermenting. Once you transfer it to the fridge, air-tight containers are fine. My kitchen... (more)

Extra virgin is fine to cook with, just don't burn it (as with any oil). I've dumped coconut oil. Olive oil or butter is all I bother with anymore, red palm oil for vitamin E too.

Is vegetarian food good for health and thus it help to lose weight?

David_Moss 0 · March 04, 2013 at 10:33 AM

This is a completely misconceived question. "Vegetarian" is defined by exclusion, namely: food that isn't meat. Therefore it makes no sense to ask whether 'vegetarian food' is good, because this is just asking 'is food which is not meat good?' (more)
